For Dr. John Snider, opening up a family dentistry practice in Taylorsville was like coming home to serve familiar friends in a community he loved.

Snider — who owns and operates Snider Family Dental at 880 Taylorsville Road — grew up in Spencer County and is a 2003 Spencer County High School graduate. He attended Georgetown College and went on to complete dental school at the University of Louisville. In August Snider will celebrate his practice’s second anniversary. He said his dental chair has pretty much been occupied since opening in 2013.

“We want to be affordable and friendly,” he said. “There’s something very rewarding to serve in the community that you grew up in.”

Snider operates with the help of his mother, Belinda Snider, who is the office manager, and with dental assistant Kristine Kjera. Together the team offers an array of dental services, including preventative care, extractions, dentures, crowns, bridges, fillings, sleep apnea treatments, treatments for snoring and more. Snider serves patients of all ages and accepts most all insurances. He works hard to work within a patient’s budget while meeting the desired outcome.

“A lot of other dentists want to sell you a product, but this is a health profession. I want to do the best I can to serve the people,” he said.

Belinda Snider said her son’s dream has always been to come back home and be among the people of Spencer County.

“He’s a small town dentist. He likes talking to people,” she said.

Snider said he has desired to be a dentist since his junior year in high school and has found that career path very rewarding.

“It’s a great way to serve someone’s health needs,” he said.

While Snider serves many Spencer County patients, people come from Louisville, Shelbyville, Bardstown, Frankfort and beyond to reap the benefits of his dental expertise and friendly atmosphere.

“I love the small town mom-and-pop feel,” he said.

Snider Family Dental is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. by appointment. Emergency dental situations are also worked in as scheduling allows. To make an appointment or just to schedule a consultation, call 502-477-0777.
